Mental health and wellbeing help

Finding the support services that work well together and provide you with the right support, are vital to effective recovery.

The service providers details listed below can assist with mental health queries. These are given in good faith, and for the needs of all people regardless of disability, sexuality, gender identity, culture and religion.

Mental health assessment, referral and treatment services

If you are feeling anxious or depressed, psychologically distressed or just not quite right. Visit your doctor or any general practitioner (GP) as the first point of call.

Ask if you are eligible for the Mental Health Treatment Plan – this can give you access to mental health professionals at a reduced cost or with some free sessions.
